  • Loved it here! The seals are amazing, the seafood snacks are fresh and delicious. Seeing the fishermen at work is a plus.
  • If you want to see seals this is the place to go. When the fishing boats come in to unload seals are right there to help. Also of note, the fisherman are nice and don't mind answering questions. Definitely worth the drive!
  • Don't go to Chatham without checking out the Fish Pier. It's a must-see, for sure, and the lobster rolls are among the best. Be sure to look for seals off the ends of the pier while you're there!
  • Quick visit for the best clam chowder we have had in new england. Lumps upon lumps of clam meat. Pint was $7. Scenery is a plus. All the fish was fresh. Check out my photos!
  • Great destination! Lots of activity with fishing boats so plenty of seals floating around. The market has a ton of fresh seafood plus you can order meals like my lobster roll! We sometimes come here first before going to our rental house!
